A resilient & resourceful nation that has to be self -reliant

The existence of the nation of Israel against sustained opposition amazes their supporters & opponents. The world has benefited from the contributions of the Jewish race in many areas of science, medicine & the arts. We need to appreciate the contributions they have given to the world.

Interesting history

This article (video) gives an interesting look at the seldom known facts of Israel's war of independence, but it misses the most important fact, and that is that God Himself intervened on behalf of His chosen people just as He did over and over throughout the Old Testament. These incidents weren't just clever coincidences; they were divine interventions by our loving Heavenly Father, something we shouldn't take for granted!

Juvenile & jokey approach, plus a bit ttoo much snark.

The video seems at odds with the actual title. And the assumption seems to be that the viewer has the attention span of a ten year old gamer and must be roped in by cartoonish treatment of history. The archival material is interesting in its own right and does not need snarky commentary.
